The Washington Redskins selected Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and they have been both excited and disappointed by what they have seen so far. Griffin tore his ACL at the end of his rookie season, and certainly wasn’t fully ready to play at 100% during last season. He looked very nervous and scared of taking hits, and he simply wasn’t...
